Easter Macaron Baking for Children

Easter is a great time for baking, buying and enjoying sweet treats.  The shops are full of delicious temptations and television cooks inspire us with traditional seasonal recipes and new and exciting alternatives that we just have to try!

Children love to bake, and enjoy sharing the produce of their own handiwork with admiring family members.   During the Easter holidays,  I will be running macaron “Bake with Me ” sessions for 7 – 12 year olds, working with the children to create a selection of seasonally themed and decorated macarons to take home in a pretty Easter gift box.

Macaron “Bake with Me” sessions, with an Easter theme, which cost only £22.50 per child, including macarons and refreshments,  and coffee or tea for accompanying adults,  will take place at The Real Macaron Company, 41a Newtown Road, RG14 7BS, Newbury, on Tuesday 11th, Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th April, starting at 2pm on each day. Spaces are limited so do book early to avoid disappointment.

An exciting, new direction for The Real Macaron Company….

Dear Customers,

I am writing to you today to let you know about the significant and exciting changes that are occurring at The Real Macaron Company.

When I first started out on this macaron adventure, my original plan was to teach Master Classes and create bespoke macarons for weddings, corporate events and other celebrations.  Since opening the shop in Newbury, in November 2014, the business has taken off at a great pace and I am absolutely delighted with the results of the last two years.  As a consequence of this success, I now wish to fully focus the business around its key aspects – the Macaron Master Classes, Weddings and Events and smaller, bespoke orders.

From the 1st August 2016 I will be closing the coffee shop, in order to dedicate more time and creative energy to the core business.

The Real Macaron Company is NOT closing down! I am simply moving the business in a new direction!  41a Newtown Road, Newbury will still be the hub of The Real Macaron Company.  I will continue to host Master Classes and ‘Bake with Me’ Classes at the premises.  With more time to devote to this side of the business, I have plans for new and exciting events and activities.

I will also continue to regularly bake in the shop and will be able to take on even more orders – large or small – whether for your weekend treats, or for special celebrations or parties!

Orders can be placed as normal by phone, email or via the website and you will be able to collect from the shop, by arrangement or even benefit from personal delivery. Details will follow.

I hope you will continue to support me in this exciting venture.  If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me.  I really want to ensure everything is clear about the changes that are being made, and that you all continue to enjoy Real Macarons!

Kind regards

Gaye

Macaron Master Classes, morning, afternoon or evening

Really looking forward to moving into our new shop premises in Newbury.  The first Macaron Master Class will be held there on 11th October – and we are still taking bookings for that class.  New dates for October and November are on the website and, to give everyone the chance to come along and learn the delights of macaron baking, I have included weekday morning classes and evening classes  as well as Saturday afternoons.  Do let me know what would suit you best – I can be flexible and build a class around you and your friends.  Learn to bake macarons in time for Christmas – they are certain to give the traditional mince pies and chocolate log a run for their money!
